Potters Bar Museum has today unveiled its latest exhibition focusing on the Royal Air Force following its centenary last month.

It delves into the Force’s history with particular focus on its early years, which were dominated by Lord Trenchard, who lived near Potters Bar at Dancers Hill House.

Councillor Caroline Clapper, portfolio holder for leisure, culture and health, said: “This exhibition is a really interesting look at the Royal Air Force and how a member of our community transformed it into the well-known and respected organisation it is today.

“Lord Trenchard guided the service, establishing a deeper understanding of the potentially revolutionary role of air power in war.”

The museum is situated within the Wyllyotts Centre on Darkes Lane. It is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays between 2.30pm and 4.30pm, and Saturdays from 11am till 1pm. Admission is free.
